Net income date range continues to be inaccurate. Please update the Mint community with any progress.

An issue I continue to deal with - and get no answers from Mint - is that the net income date ranges are messed up, at least with dates that are a decent amount in the past.  The date range Mint uses is from the 1st to the 1st, but it should simply be the 1st until the last day of that month.  So any charges that occur on the 1st are double counted - both in the accurate month, as well as the previous month's total.

I have directly contacted Mint on this, and have seen other posts in this forum on it (one labeling this error as dangerous).  Mint's responses are all the same - we are aware, and will update.  Please submit an update here.  This fix seems very easy - just correct a date range.

The attachment shows the date range used when clicking Expenses or Income on the Net Income screen.  Again, this is auto-generated - I did not select a Custom Range.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
